A series of 4-aminobenzamide derivatives of Schiff base compounds have been isolated from condensation of 1,2-dicarbonyl compounds such as benzil, o-phthaldehyde, 2,3-pentanedione, 2,3-butanedione and glyoxal with 4-aminobenzamide. The compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, electrochemical and various spectroscopic studies like IR, UV-Visible, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. The prepared compounds were screened for antibacterial activity against Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria.
